@jalcine This is what concerns me: "A strong case can be made that blitzscaling isn’t really a recipe for success but rather survivorship bias masquerading as a strategy."

Oh and this is nice too: 'Sustainability may not actually matter, though, according to the gospel of blitzscaling. After all, the book’s marketing copy does not promise the secret of building massively profitable or enduring companies, but merely “massively valuable” ones.'
